Tasting Notes

This unique whiskey showcases the potential complexity that comes at the beginning of production and not cask finishing. In this case what's produced is not just a "distillers beer" but a complete, hearty barley wine that is made of English 2-row barley and Vienna malt. A generous dose of hops are also added for balance.This allows the new-make spirit to have loads of intricate aromas from the start and not just relying on different types of barrels ( i.e. Sauternes cask, Port or Sherry casks) for added aromas/flavors. Aging in charred new-oak mellows out this little gem and results in a stunning riff on classic whiskey. A burgeoning category with incredible potential. Keep your eye out for more like this.
